Partying on a cool rooftop - Lanai Rooftop Lounge Jan 01, 2009
I went to Lanai with some friends in Austin. It was a slow day, right after the big NYE celebrations, so mostly everybody decided to take a break. Well, this wasn't so bad, so usually this place is packed and is difficult to get drinks, but not this time.
The atmosphere of the place is very nice. It's a rooftop, so you have a nice view of downtown and I guess this place might be really nice in summer. During winter the roof is covered, so you wouldn't get cold. The decor is kind of Middle Eastern. There are huge benches and sofas with lot of pillows. The tables are big too, but comfy tables, and the couches are a good place to relax. The "openness" of the place really can make you comfortable.
The drinks are not cheap. You could find them cheaper other places, but just think you are paying for the relaxed atmosphere... also the music is cool, although a bit loud if you want to talk with friends. And don't forget: Happy Hour daily from 4pm-8pm
I'd like to come back here for summer time and / or when there are more people partying :)
